Tennessee Pastor Tackles Gunman During Sunday Church Service

A Tennessee pastor prevented a doable mass taking pictures when he tackled a gunman throughout a Sunday church service.

During a Nashville Mild Mission Pentecostal Church service, the largely Black congregation was having fun with the phrase whereas 26-year-old Dezire Baganda sat in direction of the entrance of the sanctuary. Baganda pulled out a gun for no obvious purpose and walked as much as the altar the place Pastor Ezekiel Ndikumana was praying with church members. The deranged man waved the gun round and demanded the congregation get up as he pointed the weapon at them.

In a swift choice, Ndikumana tackled the suspect, bringing him to the ground. Some worshippers fled the church, whereas others helped disarm the person and held him there till the police arrived. Fortunately, nobody was injured. Ndikumana revealed that Baganda had attended a number of church providers, although he was not a member. It’s unclear what his motive was for threatening the congregation.

Nzojibugami Noe, a choir singer who was within the entrance row when the incident unfolded, credit God for “taking care of me and everyone else in the building.”

Pastor Ndikumana says he’s simply completely happy that he might get to Baganda earlier than he was in a position to hurt his members, who he regards as his “family.”

Baganda was charged with 57 counts of felony aggravated assault. He’s jailed in Davidson County on a $375,000 bond.
